Little Girl comes over to me, pats me several time on the arm and then starts talking, completely ignoring the fact that I am working with and talking to another child.
Me: (somewhat irritably because this has happened before) - words to the effect that I'm working with someone, she is not ever to pat me like that again (it's a pet hate, no pun intended there) and she must wait until it is her turn as there are 28 other children in the class . . . blah, blah . . .
Off goes L G.
L G: Mrs Clark, Mrs . . . oh . . .
and she stops and waits for me to finish what I was saying to someone else before I turn to her.
Me: Well done, L G, that's really good, You saw I was busy and you waited politely until I had finished. I'm very proud of you, give yourself a pat on the back! (they like pats on the back) Now, what did you want to say?
Just before the end of school:
Me: Can you remember what you learned today, L G?
L G: I learned that I talk too much . . .
I did explain again!
